Effective Federal Tax Rates

Effective Federal Tax Rates

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has published an interesting document titled Historical Effective Federal Tax Rates: 1979 to 2005.

This is a fascinating document, because it breaks down taxes by who pays them. It shows us, for example, that the lowest earning quintile (20%) of taxpayers pay only .8% of all Federal taxes. On the other side, the top earning quintile of all taxpayers pay 68.7% of all federal taxes. The top 1% pay 27.6% of federal taxes.

Send this document to your liberal “friends” next time they complain to you that hard working Americans are not paying enough taxes to support the poor and unfortunate.
